Ma Femme est une actrice

Art imitates life in this frothy French romantic comedy that teams real-life married couple Attal and Gainsbourg as a husband who is insanely jealous of his famous actress wife. Even the names remain the same. Yvan is a sportswriter who hates being eclipsed by his movie star wife’s popularity whilst he frets over Charlotte’s fidelity, especially regards her leading men. And when that co-star is ageing Brit sex symbol John (Stamp), Yvan shifts into high gear, Woody Allen-esque angst.
